OpenAI tweeted that the official ChatGPT mobile app is available in more countries. Last week, OpenAI launched its iOS-only mobile app in the U.S. Europe, South Korea, New Zealand, and more can now download the app from the App Store.
Ad-free ChatGPT is free. Since it’s just a chatbot interface, ChatGPT users will feel right at home.
The full list of countries offering the ChatGPT is: Albania, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Jamaica, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Nigeria, South Korea, U.K., and U.S. The app is iOS-only again. OpenAI initially promised an Android app would be “coming soon.”
Start typing in the app’s bottom text box. It works like any messaging app. Apple’s built-in speech recognition feature and OpenAI’s Whisper can be used to dictate text.
After sending your request, OpenAI generates an AI response. Request more information or a different answer. Users can copy and paste answers in code blocks.
ChatGPT automatically saves chat history for model training. This feature lets you find conversations on desktop. Disabling data sharing requires disabling chat history.
ChatGPT Plus subscribers can use GPT-4’s mobile app. Response times should also improve. ChatGPT Plus costs $20 per month on desktop and in-app in your local currency (€22.99 in Europe, £19.99 in the U.K.).
This week, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman is meeting European leaders like France’s Emmanuel Macron, Spain’s Pedro Sánchez, and the U.K.’s Rishi Sunak, so this expansion’s timing is interesting. Altman criticizes hasty AI regulation. “Just download the app” makes ChatGPT more accessible in Europe.
